BIM 360 at the Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility
The BIM 360 modeling process helped all project stakeholders
visualize and coordinate the final details of the complex design. It created a
real-time environment for trade contractors to collaborate in parallel and
allowed the team to prefabricate major elements accurately and with the
confidence that installation would be seamless on-site. The final results of
using a fully coordinated 3D BIM model were realized in improved performance in
safety, quality, cost, and schedule.
